"Russell's encyclopedic command of nautical lore, joined to his infrequent skill to spin a ripping yarn, areas the reader correct in the course of the motion, of which there's lots. He loves these items, and he makes us like it, yet does us the courtesy by no means to oversimplify, by no means to gloss over the issues of the officials, the seamen, the politicians, and their army. Out of that ruthlessly clear-eyed imaginative and prescient, he creates characters and events that remain within the reader's reminiscence at the same time stories of broadsides and cutlass duels fade.

But it wasn't a willing whore he wanted. It was Brenna Collins. Bending over, he picked up her keys. He closed his fist around the metal ring with its burden of five keys and let his hand fall to his thigh where he squeezed the keys, fingering them, feeling the biting edge of their metal surfaces, experiencing the coolness of the aluminum turning hot in his palm.
